Where to buy a Sanke?
« on: July 07, 2011, 08:19:23 AM »
A recent thread on fermenting in a Sanke has got me thinking of buying a couple.  Anyone got a line on where I can find some semi-cheap?  Sabco seems to be sold out at the moment.  I also thought about checking my local distributor. I Just haven't got around to it.  What the going rate / reasonable price for a Sanke these days? Thanks!

Go directly to a brewery.  They're the ones who own the kegs, not the distributor.  Ask about decommissioned kegs.

Well, we only have one lil' Micro in town but I'll be sure to drop them a line.  Thx for the tip, Denny.
